Here’s the basics: collect all the scrap metal you want to sell, bring it to our facility in Middleborough, Massachusetts, then we’ll pay you for it! It’s as simple as that! Continue reading below to learn more about what to expect on your first visit to a scrap metal recycling facility!

Gather Up Your Scrap Metal 

The first step in the scrap metal recycling process is to gather up all the loose scrap metal and equipment that you want to sell from your home or business. A good rule of thumb to remember is that almost anything that is primarily made of metal can be sold for its value in scrap metal! Some common household items that are great to sell include grills, A/C units, metal patio furniture, old electronics, car parts, and even whole junk vehicles! Simply gather up your scrap metal, then get ready to drive to our facility in Middleborough!

Sorting By Metal Types 

This step is optional, but if you want to get the most money for your scrap metal, you should attempt to sort your metals by type. Put copper in one pile, iron in another, aluminum in another, etc. By doing this, you’ll make the process easier for you and the scrap facility, all while ensuring that you’ll get the best price for your metals. If you’re not sure how to sort your items, our team is always here to help!

Transport Your Items To The Scrap Facility 

The next step in the scrap metal recycling process is to get your items to the scrap facility! If you own a truck or don’t have a huge number of items to sell, then this will be an easy step! If you need assistance getting your metals to our facility, we offer roll-off dumpster rentals and junk vehicle pickup services in the Southeastern Massachusetts region!
